Discription of surf spot: Caswell Bay, Wales

Set between two headlands (one leads south to Langland and then Mumbles, the other over to Worm's head), this spot is a total beginner's area. No challenging waves really, and no localism. You can surf calmly to get the hang of it. Then branch out to Llangenith or Langland (where better locasl surf). Long walk out a low tide. Small left and right handers peel of towards both headlands from the center of the beach. There is a surf school that runs out of a neat shack that is on the right hand ramp to the beach. Take a miniMal or a longboard to get the hang of cruising here. Nothing spectacular for experienced surfers.
